(Worthy News) - The Israel Defense Forces on Wednesday created a new type of combat unit bringing together infantry, tanks, combat engineering and air power to serve as a proving ground for new fighting techniques and tactics.
The unit appeared to be first of its kind anywhere in the world, the army said.
The military said the troops who will serve in this unit were already arriving at their new base, whose location has not been disclosed, and would begin a team-building process shortly. It was not immediately clear when this new unit would become fully operational. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
